Hulu has slated an original special, The Housewife & The Shah Shocker, that examines the allegations against The Real Housewives of Salt Lake City cast member Jen Shah, who is accused of being involved with a long-running telemarketing scheme that preyed on the elderly.

Shah is facing charges of conspiracy to commit wire fraud and conspiracy to commit money laundering following events that played out during the filming of Real Housewives. The new special explores the allegations alongside the wealthy and successful businesswoman and “marketing executive” Shah portrayed on the reality series.

The Housewife & The Shah Shocker begins streaming on Hulu on November 29. It features interviews with people who knew Shah, including her childhood classmate Beth Hahne and her aunt Lehua Vincent. Also featured are alleged victims Penny Jo Pucket and Marie Walker, who discuss how they were duped by companies involved in the alleged scam, while law enforcement breaks down how the alleged ruse worked.

Popular Housewives and Bravo commentators will also discuss Shah’s persona and early confusion from fans about her wealth, employment and need for multiple assistants, including Stuart Smith, who was also arrested in connection with the alleged scheme. Both Shah and Smith have entered not guilty pleas to the charges.

The Housewife & the Shah Shocker was produced for Hulu by ABC News Studios. Roxanna Sherwood is the senior executive producer, with Loen Kelley serving as senior producer. The project follows an earlier Housewives-related special, The Housewife and the Hustler, also produced by ABC News Studios for Hulu.
